MANNY PARRA THROWS PERFECT GAME

Brewer pitching prospect Manny Parra threw a perfect game for the Nashville Sounds tonight in only his second start with the team. Read the game story HERE.

If he can finally put together a full season without injury, we might have another pitcher to add to the bottleneck that the Brewers' starting five has become. Congrats Manny! Hope to see you in Brewer blue soon.
